KUKA Innovation Award 2022

We are looking for the best ideas! Apply now for the "Robotics in Healthcare" Challenge until January 7, 2022!


"Robotics in Healthcare" Challenge

The "Robotics in Healthcare" Challenge is about the interaction of robotic systems with humans in medical applications. For this purpose, we are looking for ideas around the topic of diagnosis, rehabilitation and treatment in the healthcare and nursing sector. We encourage participants to submit a concept that uses a robotic system to improve the ability to monitor health and prevent, detect, treat, and manage disease, as well as to test and demonstrate new models and tools for health and care delivery. We are looking for solutions that will enable new robotic use cases for the future of healthcare.

Be the next medical pioneer

Send us your idea, describing use cases where robots today face major challenges in interacting with their real-world environment, including human-robot collaboration. The focus should be on introducing and demonstrating new and interactive methods for personalizing and improving health and care.

Your concept should be versatile, perhaps even applicable outside the medical field, and in no way limited to one technical approach to solving a specific use case. Participants from academia, research and industry are encouraged to present ideas that may lead to, or are already close to, commercialization.
